The Open Plain: Cloud & Owl's Festival Mix 2014

The Open Plain: Cloud & Owl's Festival Mix 2014

Playing tracks by

Chymera, Henry Saiz, Hermanez, Legowelt, Davi and more.

We post one mix to MixCloud every week, with at least every other one being by us. So how to make our showcase set for 2014 stand out? For us, the answer was simple - by making it the best it could be.

We've delved deep into our record boxes, pulling out a selection that takes in deep house, invigorating techno, playful electronica, freak-out jazz acid experiments, blistering guitar work and funky bass. The tempo isn't racing, but the groove is solid, building from the off.

Older gems from Chymera and Rovo rub shoulders with fresh tracks and remixes from Henry Saiz and Dominik Eulberg. Opening with submerged grooves, you're never too far from a melody, with tribal percussion a mainstay throughout the set. Come the hour mark, subtlety is thrown out of the window, in a high-octane finalé that could be considered cheesy if not for the context in which it's presented.

The set was originally recorded to win us festival bookings - if you like what you hear, please get in touch!

ps this also doubles as Insurgent Souls (on Barricade Radio) #81, in case you were wondering. In that we premiered the set on the radio. But it's much more than just another episode of our show...
